Bruschetta Feta Dip

The first time my cousins, Kimmie and Stratton, came to Sunday dinner was the predecessor to the first Monday in quite some time I was close to calling in sick to work due to the party flu.  I think our Sunday dinner that night lasted somewhere along the lines of 4 to 5 hours.  

We poured some wine and caught up on family stories, we opened another bottle and told funny tales about what we have all gotten into in the time we haven't seen each other as often as we would like, we broke into the boxed wine, poured it into a decanter and called it classy while at the same time laughing so hard it made our sides hurt.

Since this first epic Sunday dinner together we knew we would have to be getting together far more than the occasional family gathering.  Since then we have had dinner, drinks, and hours upon hours of cocktails, stories, wine and entertainment.

When we recently had dinner together this summer Kimmie made this most amazing dip.  When I say amazing what I really mean is in between shoveling it into my mouth all the while begging her for he recipe not stopping to swallow and ask like a civilized human being.

It was so incredibly fantastic that I literally could not wait to make it for the rest of the family.  I used to claim that I wasn't a huge feta fan....well I don't care what you think you do or do not will LOVE this dip!
